This might not have plain mayo but it does have Ranch dressing, which has mayo - or at least it should be made with mayonnaise. This would probably be better made with home made Ranch dressing but the bottled dressing just didn't taste very good in this pasta salad.

This is almost exactly the way I make my pasta salad. I only use Italian dressing (not a fan of ranch) I also add cubed ham or chunks of kielbasa. Also add chunks of cheese. Usually whatever I have on hand. I like a white and a yellow for the taste and color. Always gets raves.

I loved it... I changed up though cause I'm scared of tomatoes. I used the cucumber, sliced pepperoni, and olives... it was awesome oh I also used fresh grated parmesean cheese.

I just made this and am letting it "blend" a little before serving. I'm not a big fan of sour, and Italian dressing has a little too much bite for me, so I did the Ranch/Italian blend as in the recipe. It's perfect for me. I like this recipe because it is so versatile. I can see using this dressing always in my pasta and other salads.

I just didn't like the combo of Italian & Ranch dressings. It just wasn't for us.
